Law in Development - early career scholars workshop

April 11, 2011

British Institute in Eastern Africa, Nairobi, 10 June 2011

This workshop will provide an opportunity for early career scholars in the broad field of law and development to reflect on its themes, progress and future. Taking place the day after a workshop on Constitutions and Constitution Making to be hosted jointly by the Katiba Institute and the British Institute in Eastern Africa (BIEA), the work in progress seminar will provide an informal and supportive forum in which to present work in progress, to receive feedback on ideas for projects and publications and to discuss methodological and ethical issues related to an ongoing project.

The BIEA invites proposals from early career scholars in the region. We would be happy to hear from academics from a range of disciplines, including lawyers, political scientists and historians.
Please provide an abstract of between 700–1000 words describing your project and the reasons why you would like to present your work at the seminar. Please include a CV and email address with your proposal.

The proposal should be sent by email to by 10 May 2011.

Scholars will be selected for participation and notified of the result by 25 May 2
